If that's going to happen, then ideally we would have a way to run tests 
as part of the hackage acceptance process.  For instance, the change to 
a time format string wouldn't break anything at compile time, but my 
HDBC test suite sure caught it.

I can see difficulty with this, though, particularly with packages that 
are bindings to C libraries.
